WHAT IS SCHUTZHUND
2 level: OBEDIENCE
1 level: TRACKING
The PROTECTION phase test the dog's courage, physical strength and agility. The handler's control for the dog is absolutely essential. The exercises include a search of hiding places, finding a hidden person ( acting as a human decoy ), and guarding that decoy while the handler approaches. The dog is expected to pursue the decoy when an escape is attempted and to hold the grip ( bite ) firmly. The decoy is searched and transported to the judge with the handler and dog walking behind and later at the decoy's side. When the decoy attempts to attack the handler, the dog is expected to stop the attack with a firm grip and no hesitation. The final test of courage occurs when the decoy is asked to come out of a hiding place by the judge from the opposite end of the trial field. The dog is sent after the decoy when he refuses to listen to the handler's command to stop. The decoy then runs directly at the dog threatening the dog with a stick. All grips during the protection phase are expected to be firmly placed on the padded sleeve and stopped on command and or when the decoy discontinues the fight. The protection test are intended to assure that the dog is neither a coward nor a criminal menace. Dogs that are out of control are dismissed, as well as dogs that do not release the bite.
The OBEDIENCE phase includes a series of heeling exercises,some of which are closely in and around a group of people. During the heeling ,there is a gun shot test to assure that the dog does not openly react to such sharp noises. There is also a series of field exercises in which the dog is commanded to sit, lie down and stand while the handler continues to move. From these various positions, the dog is recalled to the handler. With dumbbells of various weights, the dog is required to retrieve on a flat surface, over a one-meter hurdle and over a six-foot slanted wall. The dog is also asked to run in a straight direction from its handler on command and lie down on a second command. Finally, each dog is expected to stay in a lying down position away from its handler, despite distractions, at the other end of the obedience field, while another dog completes the above exercises. All of the obedience exercises are tests of the dog's temperament, structural efficiency and very importantly, its willingness to serve man and woman.

HISTORY of SCHUTZHUND
A SHUTZHUND trial begins with a temperament test for all entered dog's where the handler must walk the dog through a crowd of strangers, and the judge observes the dog's reaction to be being approached closely on a loose leash. Dogs that show shyness or aggression are dismissed from the trial. This basic temperament test is repeated and must be passed before each trial. This help to ensure that the dog is safe with strangers and in a crowded situation.
